What Is Compassionate Allowance Expedition?
Posted in: Benefits on September 30th, 2011

disability benefitsNot all disabilities are the same when it comes to the business of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance.  With the program in the shape that it is, and the amount of stress currently on the system, it can take upwards of two years for regular applications to get through the process of denial and appeals.  This can cause extreme, economic hardship.

The idea of a compassionate allowance is that it allows the most severely-disabled Americans to get their disability benefits sooner than if they had a lesser disability.  The vast majority of diseases and injuries that are on the compassionate allowance list are terminal in nature, but this is not always the case.  A good example of a compassionate allowance that is not necessarily terminal is severe spinal cord injury.

If you have an illness or injury that is listed on the compassionate allowance list, the Social Security Administration must review and decide on your case within one day.  In the event that you end up being denied, you will have to go through appeal just like a regular applicant, only the process will be a little bit faster.  Despite this, the judges who are in charge of your case will be expecting to see just as much proof regarding the existence of your disability as compared to regular cases, so be ready with the information necessary to prove that you actually do deserve the compassionate allowance.  The compassionate allowance is there to help those who are in desperate need – and if you fit the bill, you’ll get your benefits fast!
